Description

Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is...but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.

And that doesn't make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill: he's tall, he's dark and he's handsome - and Sookie can't 'hear' a word he's thinking. He's exactly the type of guy she's been waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he's fussy about his food, he doesn't like suntans, and he's never around during the day....Yep, Bill's a vampire.

Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble - of the murderous kind. And then one of Sookie's colleagues at the bar is killed, and it's beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim....

Fangtastic!

Clever, funny & surprisingly well written. I hesitate to draw comparisons with other vampire/human relationship sagas, as all have value in this literary genre. However, this story, & I suspect all subsequent sequels, contains adult content that I would not necessarily recommend for the younger teenage reader/listener. Johanna Parker brings the story alive & is by far my favourite narrator so far.

Surprising

I have watched the first season of True Blood and didn't really like it all that much, it was a little too explicit for my tastes but I decided to give the book a go. I was pleasantly surprised and found it very hard to stop listening to once I started.

LOVE IT!!

I wasn't sure if I should start with the first book, since I've already seen the TV series, but I am so happy I did. The book is better than the show. I don't want to listen to anything else until I finish the series.

I'm a sucker for Sookie!

What a great, fun listen! The mythology is great, characters are very likeable and the plot keeps you interested until the end. For those who have watched True Blood, the books are quite different. Certainly too raunchy for teens but a great adult read.

Not to my taste

I found this a whiney story with Sookie an annoying character. I won't be buying anymore.

A fun holiday read

What did you like best about Dead Until Dark? What did you like least?

There was a little humour there which was good, and it was a quick and easy listen. It lacked detail and character depth and Sookie was needy and a bit pathetic.

Could you see Dead Until Dark being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This is the series that True Blood is based on and for once the series is better. The series is edgy, visually appealing and actually better written than the book. It also explores the characters a little more and Sookie is a more independent woman.

Fun and enjoyable read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a light read. It is easy to listen to and Parker has a good voice for the character which made her sound believable.

Loved It

Any additional comments?

Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Happy Reading

Love the story, the narrator, not so much

Anyone who is familiar with Charlaine Harris's storyline following barmaid and telepath Sookie Stackhouse definitely needs to listen to this book. I had already read the series on my Kindle when I was turned on to the Audible.com site. While not my first purchase, it was one of the first and I haven't been disappointed. Since I'm a fast, and somewhat sloppy reader, listening to the well paced book actually helped me to pick out details I had missed in the first reading.

The narrator I found a bit boring at times and sincerely wished that Mrs. Harris would have used two narrators, one male and one female, as another favorite author has done. The high pitched narrator doesn't always successfully distinguish the male characters by her voice and you have to listen closely to make sure you know who is speaking.

Otherwise, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a great book to listen to by the pool this summer. You won't be disappointed.

Gute Geschichte, gute Sprecherin

Ich habe mir zuerst das deutsche Hörbuch angehört - klingt jedoch nicht annähernd so gut wie die englische Originalversion. Wunderbare Sprecherin für ein tolles Buch. Ich werde bestimmt auf englisch fortfahren…..

Interessantes Hörerlebnis

Die war mein erses Hörbuch, gelesen in amerikanichem Englisch.Vorher hatte ich nur
örbüche in britischm Englischghört, aber die Vorleserin passt super zur Potagonistin und ich bin sehr zufrieden. Ich hatte die Bücher vorhr nicht gelesen. Ich hatte nur die Serie True Blood gesehen und bin beeindruckt, wie ausführlich Charlaine Harris die Gefühle von Sookie Bll gegenüber herüber bringt. Der Südstaaten-Slang ist soooo passend. Man kann die schwüle Hitze Luisiannas förmlich spüren.

ein Bis(s) der anderen Art

Blutsauger für Erwachsene. Leider nur in englischer Sprache zu haben. Die Sprecherin macht ihre Sache gut, aber für mich war der Südstaatenakzent teilweise ein wenig schwer zu verstehen. Da half es mir, dass ich die TV-Serie bereits gesehen hatte. Aber mit besseren Englischkenntnissen, ist dies vermutlich kein Problem. Die Geschichte gefällt mir gut. Wie gesagt, anders als die Bis(s) Teenagervampiere mehr für Erwachsene.
